I haven't use it before but I understand they won't use putty anymore, as I'm using MobaXterm for a long time.
And yes it's because it's not very hard to create a program more user friendly than putty.. And when you have to use several terminals at the same time, you absolutely need a ssh client which support them in the same interface.
But the main feature I have seen with Bitvise is the bridge FTP to SFTP, it's pretty cool.

If you want you can try mobaxterm as it does SSH, SFTP, RDP, Shell, Telnet and VNC

Bitvise is good no doubt, but give a try to Xshell5 for me it is the best. Easy tunnel creation, live modification, sftp, safe encryption of stored passwords, lovely design and shell themes any many more. Install it, use it for a few minutes and comment how you feel like.

Also, a great comparison here between the worlds mots used SSH clients, I hope it helps you find your question's answers here.

Putty is not user friendly and when it comes to managing a lot of VPS/servers it tends to not do a good job in terms of organizing which is why people or organisations with multiple servers do not rely on putty. dont get me wrong its great however its simply not efficient for a working environment.

What do you mean for managing a lot of VPS/servers? I could not find to create tabs in putty and opening mutli VPS's at once time.

I have to check this tool, more people are using and recommending it.
I used Putty all the time and doesn't get any issues with this tool. It's simple and fast.

Personally I prefer Putty, it's simple and fast. I only manage a single server, so no need to use a more powerful tool.

I used Bitvise Tunnelier but seem it is dificult to use and complex to me.
I found that putty is simple and run faster than other SSH consoles but it doesn't support to open multi tabs like other tools.
Can I open multi sessions (log in to multi VPS servers) with Putty at same time?

You should try MobaXterm, that's putty with a tab manager and also a password manager

MobaXterm is a free software and I can use it for my VPS?
I am using PuTTY but still looking for an alternative.

Why Bitvise is your favorite? what features attract you?

i used putty is good

Agreed, I tried Bitvise for a while but I had to get back to Putty because it is simpler and easy to connect to my VPS via SSH. I found out that Bitvise has too many functions that I don't need, that's just necessary for a web hosting provider.

I find bitvise to sue as you can save each Connection seperatly.
Also the SSH and SFTP file transfer loads together so i dont need to mess around with a seperate program that does the ftp transfers.

Well, It's a matter of choice, PuTTy always a very good client to access the linux vps and which is very simple and easy to use. I have been using PuTTY since 2011 and never face any issue with it. So I can confidentely say that PuTTy is the best to operate the vps with it because i have used Bitvise as well but which is quite confusing in some ways.

But still It is totaly depend on your choice both software is good and up in the market.

When i was new, i used Putty, but then someone suggested me Bitvise, which now i am using too, it is really better, i just don't like putty, even many people asks me why you do not, i just say Bitvise is just better than it.

There is nothing wrong with putty, it just might be a bit outdated compared to the competition.

What is outdated if compared with other software?
I find putty very useful to connect to VPS through SSH, although it could not open in tabs but you can connect to many VPS at one time if you open it in many windows instead.

Im pretty much the same as above with MobaXterm, i have used putty in the past but find that MobaXterm is very simple to use and has some extra features putty doesn't have.
